German-born Jewish artist Margot Philips (1902 – 1988) is one of the Waikato’s leading twentieth-century artists. Philips’ career as an artist began after she arrived in Kirikiriroa Hamilton in 1938, first experimenting with landscape painting in the 1950s, and then rising in prominence through the 1960s and 1970s. Landscapes were a favourite subject throughout Philips’ painting career. She was excited by the Waikato landscape and found a particular way of representing its distinctive landforms and weather patterns.
